By their nature, rivers extend over large areas and persist for long periods of time, and to understand them we need to relate observations at different scales of space and time. The ways that patterns and processes are distributed across scales, from days to centuries and from reaches to catchments, distinguish rivers in different parts of the world. Yet we know little of the nature of this variability, its environmental and evolutionary consequences and its signiﬁcance for management. We also know little of how it is affected by ﬂow regulation.
